Huskies to play Penn State in the Fiesta Bowl

No. 1 Penn State (4-0) squeaked by the Lehigh wrestling team (4-1) 23-19 in front of nearly 10,000 people at the PPL Center in Allentown. "We are excited to keep our family together for another month to represent Penn State and the Big Ten Conference".

Penn State has played in the Fiesta Bowl six times in history and won in all six appearances. Once a top contender for the Heisman Trophy, Barkley rushed for 1,134 yards and 16 touchdowns, averaging 5.7 yards per carry this season.

Penn State cut Lehigh's lead to 4 points before redshirt senior Gordon Wolf gave Lehigh another win, topping Bo Pipher in the 165-pound weight class. Lehigh held a 19-11 lead going into the final four matches.

Plenty of projections had Penn State facing off against Washington in the postseason.

The Huskies have a three-headed monster on offense with quarterback Jake Browning, running back Myles Gaskin, and wide receiver Dante Pettis. Washington, which had only one loss, edged Penn State, which had two. This is very much a possibility, as it has been proven by Bryce Love and Stanford that Washington can be beaten on the ground. Four Nittany Lions scored in double figures, with leading scorer Lamar Stevens adding two free throws with four seconds left for a total of 22 points. Photo by: Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports.

This is the fourth straight year in a row the Nittany Lions are playing in a bowl game under Coach James Franklin.

Washington and Penn State will be meeting for just the third time, and the first since the Lions beat the Huskies 13-10 in the 1983 Aloha Bowl. Nittany Lion fans everywhere will certainly hope that trend continues come December 30.
